A perfect kachori is one that is puffed up and flaky outside but hollow inside as the filling sticks to the crust. Here is how to make such an ideal kachori, right in your own kitchen. With a flavourful moong dal mixture as filling, this kachori is deep-fried patiently on a slow flame to achieve that deliciously crisp crust and hollow, well-cooked interior. The Moong Dal Kachori can be kept fresh and stored in an air-tight containers for 2 to 3 days. Just before serving, warm up the kachoris in an oven for about 7 to 10 minutes, fill them with curds and chutneys and serve!

Tarla Dalal    When you knead the dough for kachori make sure you heat the ghee before adding it to the dough. And once you add the hot ghee, mix the ghee and flour mixture. Make sure your ghee is hot and wait for a while after adding the ghee to the dough or else you may burn your fingers. Once heat is bearable mix it and accordingly knead the dough, the kachori''s will definetely come out crispy.

I tried this recipe today. And it came out fabulous. I just replaced maida flour with normal aata to make a little healthy and it tasted super. I guess, we can just make this dal mixture and keep it in the fridge for a couple of days and fill it in various things like parathas.. Thanks for this amazing recipe :)

Tarla Dalal    Hi Lalit, We have tried the recipe 2 times here and they have been very flaky as in the image. Make sure you have followed the exact recipe and that the dough has been well rested and also rolled well.
